9 players have started a game for the Phillies this year:
Aumont starts the game tonight, making it 10, and Morgan […]
I’m going to be an asshole for this. I appreciate the article.
But it is “Domonic”.
Dave P commented on the post, Phils draft second baseman Scott Kingery in 2nd round 3 weeks, 4 days ago
Quinn and Crawford are going to take some more time to develop, and Kingery hasn’t played in a single professional game. Who even knows if Revere (who’s being shopped around) will even still be with the […]

According to fangraphs, Dom Brown is:
- Worst WAR with -1.1
- 5th worst wRC+ at 59 (41% WORSE than league average)
- 5th worst wOBA at .259 (Basically a more advanced way of evaluating a hitter – each hitting […]
Something else to note is that the slider does have the largest platoon split of all pitches.
This could work out in our favor tonight.

I hope that they slot Kyle Kendrick in the BP as the swingman, he had his best years in that role.
comparing kendrick’s and pettibone’s stats, you’ll notice that they are actually remarkably similar. I don’t […]

I think this would be a mistake if the team actually wanted to win. We need good pitching to hide this offense.

30 HR potential?
I’ll be surprised if he hits 20 this year. I think he’ll hit closer to 16. His batted ball splits from last year show he had an incredibly fluky may in terms of hr/fb%. It’s a great idea to […]
Now that’s a starting rotation. And exactly what I was thinking. I don’t understand why people think Tanaka won’t end up with the Phillies, but I guess it’s because they assume a japanese pitcher would want to […]
If this is supposed to turn the Phillies into contenders….there are plenty of red flags, folks.
Byrd had a near career high HR/FB% at 16.4%. UNSUSTAINABLE. It will drop down to 8-9% and his HR total will drop […]
Interesting to put Brown in right and slide revere over to left. I guess it makes sense given that Dom has a cannon for an arm and can cut down runners trying to go from first to third on a single, whereas Revere […]
We’ll always have the turkey bacon, Kratz.
Dave P commented on the post, Heyman: Phils Looking at Choo, Cruz, Ellsbury, Grandy 1 year, 8 months ago
Here’s an interesting article that seems to contradict what you said, Ian.
The article says that the 2013 payroll for the […]
He hasn’t played in 100 games in a year since 2009. He had a career high in home runs, but his HR/FB% was an astronomical 18.8%, putting him at 26th out of 316 players with a minimum of 250 PA. In no other year […]
Play – he gets on base!
Brown-Revere-Choo in outfield would be pretty solid.
That loss to the cardinals was the most stressful and frustrating games I ever had to watch. A lead off triple and that was all she wrote. It felt like an uphill battle after that inning, even though it was only a […]

There’s no need to rush Franco to the majors in 2014. I expect to see him get the Spring Training invite, but at this point it looks like it’s Asche’s job to lose. Asche’s major league career started off with a 1 […]
In case anyone hasn’t yet read it, here’s Chase Utley’s interview in Philadelphia magazine – http://www.phillymag.com/articles/real-chase-utley-phillies/

I was in attendance at this game, regrettably. A few notes-
- 1993 Phillies Night. They introduced some alumni before the game, including Ruben Amaro Jr. Ruben got booed.
- Delmon Young struck out as many […]
